Rated 5 out of 5 by pymblewiz Most flattering and beautiful dress I now own
This dress is designed for someone tall and slim. It is a blouson style from a silken polyester. It would not work if the material was more substantial as it is meant to flow and drape. I am 5? 10?? (size 4) and loved this dress from the moment it appeared. I ordered a small and have long arms so was glad the arm length was appropriate. It is long and thankfully has given me an option aside from the mini dresses on offer. The torso section for the small was perfect for me but I have a long torso ? more proportional mid sections may be overwhelmed.
The print is just beautiful ? the blue tones compliment a fair complexion/dark haired person very well and no doubt it would suit may looks due to the black accents and vibrant shades. Bear in mind that it isn?t a natural fabric with a lot of body covering so it?s best suited for mid-season or night-time ventures. I took a star off for polyester but suspect the print may only work on this fabric.
I would wear this to a cocktail party or gallery opening. It is a high fashion, beautifully sophisticated dress, however it would no doubt be too much length for a person more petite.
With the crossed nerodia wedges in snakeskin it is a killer look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunshine27 Love it
I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it but couldn't justify the full price. It went on sale and then went 25% off of that so I had to try it. It s definitely a thin material, not worth the full price, but when wearing you can't really tell. But I can justify it for the sale price. I am a curvy 6-8 and ordered the small. It fits perfectly not too tight but also not too loose. So unique! I can't wait to wear it! I will wear with tights and boots in the fall/winter or in summer with sandal. All year wear!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mainegirly extremely thin fabric
I love the picture of the model in this dress, and snapped it up when it went half price. It is hard to know what polyester means. From the picture, the dress looks like it has structure, and I was imagining a durable, wearable piece. However, the fabric is superlightweight, soft, and shiny. I see this as a bathing suit cover up or as something to wear around the house, if one lives in southern CA or other warmer climes. Not a dress that can be worn out in my locale. Not something I could be comfortable in. Pattern is very pretty as is color mix.
